    FOX News just announced that during Congressional briefings, President Trump may provide "live tweets." This is unprecedented and historical because Trump is completely bypassing the biased, immoral and unprofessional MSM.

    Like when he tweets that other countries are correct to cut ties with Qatar, which hosts the most important U.S. military base in the Persian Gulf? I suppose it's good that Trump tweets these moronic things, since at least that way no one can deny what a complete imbecile he is. Well, except you, apparently.

    Tweet me!

    SteveFoerster, tweeting is an outstanding presidential way to communicate directly with millions of loyal and silent Americans. However, the left (via MSM media cronies) is unable to edit, filter or manipulate presidential tweets, which mitigates their proclivity to spread disinformation and "fake news."

    Millions of silent Americans:
    - no longer click on bombastic "fake news" titles (why click when it's a MSM lie?)
    - no longer subscribe to leftists newspapers (MSM revenues continue to drop)
    - because the leftist-controlled and owned MSM is fully discredited and lacks journalistic integrity (for which it was formerly world renowned).

    President Donald Trump won the election because he is the best man for the job. He is doing absolutely fantastic and he is an answer to many prayers. Please help us to continue making America great again.

    I guess you were too blinded by your need for mindless cheerleading to see the part about Trump's incompetently antagonistic comments towards the host of the largest U.S. military facilities in the Gulf.

    Many MSM outlets are now completely irrelevant because they are continuing to produce a chit-storm of "fake news" (aka lies) with a sense of strategic urgency -- that is clearly failing. Incredibly, MSM irrelevance is continuing to grow. Many Americans no longer watch MSM news and no longer click on the bombastic titles of their internet links.

    The MSM is now in the business of printing bold faced lies.

    The MSM's financial course-of-action cannot continue indefinitely. :)

    Trump's 100 Year Impact

    SteveFoerster, you are quoting the MSM narrative. Even a parrot can do that.

    President Donald J. Trump is the greatest statesmen in United States history, since George Washington helped to form the nation. Great Britain needed Winston Churchill during WWII and the United States needs Donald Trump today. Great minds think alike. Trump is forming a favorable one-hundred year impact on this nation that will be felt for the remainder of the 21st Century. He only has 7.5 years remaining in office -- and much more work needs to be done. Godspeed.

    The guy is such a moron he doesn't even know where his own military bases are! And that's not from the "MSM narrative", that's from his own tweets!

    You realize you sound eerily like a North Korean praising Kim Jong-un.

    SteveFoerster, please note that North Korea's un-elected dictator, Kim Jong-un, is responsible for many state sanctioned murders. For example, if a North Korean attempts to defect to South Korea, then Kim Jong-un will have the defector's family executed -- or will send them to "political reorientation" concentration camps where death is likely. SteveFoerster, how can you compare praising Trump to praising Kim Jong-un?

    Well SteveFoerster, at least you're not rioting by destroying property and harming others who have different views from your own (hopefully).

    Let's remember that what is being called the MSM is an industry and not 'the press.' In the United States we are all the press when we publish news or opinion. As in this forum, for instance.

    I'm not convinced that his remarks about Qatar were "incompetently antagonistic". Qatar has a history of funding radical islamists. It has apparently become a home away from home for Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood.

    I'm sure that the UAE or Kuwait would be happy to host it if Qatar kicks the US out. But rich little Qatar obviously wants the security insurance that it represents. The base and Qatar's need for it isn't a US vulnerability so much as it's US leverage over them.

    Qatar has been fairly adroitly playing both sides of the street, backing the US while promoting radical islamist subversion against other countries friendly to the US in the region. Trump is signalling that he agrees with those like Egyptian president Abdel al-Sisi who want it to stop.

    I guess you don't follow the stock market? There have been record gains since Trump took office.

    Illegal immigration is down over 60%.

    There have been over 250,000 new jobs added to the economy.

    The US debt is down by $100 billion.

    Perhaps you should get your news from someplace other than CNN and MSNBC?

    Wouldn't you agree that, based on metrics like these, the Obama presidency was resounding success? I don't remember you ever characterizing it that way. Besides, I sincerely covfefe

    Because the pattern of mindless cheerleading is the same. I'm not comparing Trump with Kim, I'm comparing you to Kim's brainwashed populace.

    Hopefully you aren't either. :rolleyes:

    SteveFoerster, cheering for North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un is not the same as cheering for President Donald Trump. It's non sequitur.

    You're right, it's not the same. After all, North Koreans have the excuse that they don't have a choice.

    The problem with this argument -- and I say the same thing whoever is in the White House -- is that nearly everyone grossly exaggerates the amount of control over this sort of thing that the president really has. For one thing, Federal spending originates in the House of Representatives, not the Oval Office. For another, the Fed is the one that independently pulls the levels of interest rates and money supply. Perhaps most importantly, the global economy is extremely interconnected, and the U.S. is maybe one fifth of that, so even the president were an emperor there would only be so much he could do. So while the president obviously has influence, this thing people do of crediting him when the economy improves or blaming him when it declines just doesn't hold water.

    Bravo. :beerchug:

    Frankly, this weird behavior in Trump supporters is one of the most disturbing facets of the whole phenomenon of this, to stay with the neutral term, Administration.

    SteveFoerster, you are blessed to have Constitutional protections that allow you to call the United States president names. The North Koreans are not so lucky. SteveFoerster, here are some of your Constitutionally protected ad hominem insults:
    * ...no one can deny what a complete imbecile Trump is... *
    * ...Trump's incompetently antagonistic... *
    * ...Trump is such a moron... *

    North Koreans who refuse to publicly praise their unelected dictator, Kim Jong-un, are sent to "political reorientation" concentration camps -- or are executed -- or their family members are sent to camps as the ultimate in dictatorial vindictiveness.

    God bless the Constitution of the United States and let's make America great again!
